Morning Chores

Posted in minnesota state fair by kirbybjohnson on July 25, 2009

msf_pitchforksPeople, who each year enjoy attending the Minnesota State Fair, fondly speak of their favorite things about the Fair. Familiar themes relating to adorable baby animals, foods-on-a-stick or the best place to park the car are exchanged in earnest as opening day approaches. Families hold many traditions dear and close when attending the Fair. “I have to stop and get some Swedish Egg Coffee – – first thing…”, “Let’s go on the Sky-Ride…”, “We have to go see the baby pigs…”

Morning chores at the “Great Minnesota Get Together” probably do not generate the same type of anticipatory tension as the first bite of a Pronto Pup, the happy result of a Spin-O-Paint or trying to win a stuffed animal for your girlfriend. The prospect of getting lost doesn’t make for an exciting afternoon either: “If we get separated, we’ll meet at the bottom of the Grandstand ramp…”

The 2009 Minnesota State Fair runs for twelve days beginning Thursday, August 27th. The gates open at 6:00 AM.
